Re: The Pier 2

I was thinking about placement today and to tell the truth I think we will just let the org decide this time. I loved it on the Esplinade, it would be cool in the deep playa. So, we will see :)

Re: The Pier 2

:). Although it won't be the La Contessa. She is just our inspiration. Kinda the knowledge that it can be done.

Would love to talk to any of the people who built the La Contessa. Mostly just to talk to them and ask some questions.

Re: The Pier 2

Aesthetically that is the goal. It should look janky. Structurally it will be sturdy and sound.

Re: The Pier 2

Lemur: I'm sorry you missed it. Simon nailed its location 3:45 and about 40ft from the Esplinade. That being said, I simply cannot bring it back unchanged. It violates so many of my personal feelings about art at Burning Man. Also the Ship crashing into the middle of The Pier isn't just pure theatre...

Re: Is Land floats away, maybe we can help.

Mener: Just found out that the installation was in the middle of a lake and the asshole who cut the line took a boat out to the project to cut it. Yay, gotta love it when you instantly blame the artist for something that seems like they spent a good amount of effort trying to prevent.

Is Land floats away, maybe we can help.

In my daily internet run I just found out that Is Land, a really cool floating Island art project that was supposed to come to BM this year floated away. By floated away, it looks like some asshole cut the string to the project and the helium art project floated away. http://gizmodo.com/5828151/how-...

Re: The Pier

Crypto: Just ask on Monday after the burn.

That sign is epic.

We can't "actually" use the pier as a sound stage. However, if art cars want to roll up and play some tunes then yea :). Or if a band or some musicians want to play instruments please do so.

Count The Pier in. We have multiple chests and a bait shop, along with a myriad of boats and crab traps to hide things in. Maybe the quester will need to travel to the Pier and deposit an item in a chest, from there the chest will have instructions to the next step in the quest chain. Or we could hi...
